Park within the Preserve
Wild Chickens running around here like you would see on Kauai
I had heard some compelling things about snorkeling at Hanauma Bay
preserve, and it did not disappoint. Was a very memorable experience. They do mandate that you watch a 9 minute video prior to your entry to the area as to best understand how to help preserve the state of the reef in its waters. At the time of my visit, the preserve is closed on Tuesdays, so if you are planning a visit there, check in advance to make sure they are planning to be open on the day of your visit.
I was staying in Waikiki and it turns out The Bus
#22 leaves from Waikiki about every 30 minutes and you get there and back for USD $2.50 each way. I found their buses clean, nice passengers, and on time, its one of the easiest ways to get to Hanauma Bay and back from Waikiki.
Here are a couple of underwater videos I shot that day :
1. Swimming amongst a school of Convict Tang and friends :
2. Swimming with a Green Sea Turtle :
